5.0 out of 5 stars A truly beautiful edition of a great translation 18 May 2012
Format:Imitation Leather|Verified Purchase
This edition is an unusual and simply lovely production of the ESV translation.
(If you are reading this, it's worth checking what edition you are looking at - Amazon mixes reviews of every production of the ESV, though the physical book can be radically different).

Firstly, the edition: it's single-column (like a normal book), rather than double column (like nearly all bibles). This makes it simply much easier and pleasurable to read. Dyslexics in particular will find this helpful - it eliminates the huge numbers of awkward hyphenated words which slow you down in a narrow-column bible.

It's hard to explain how much difference single column printing makes. There are hardly any bibles like this, but there's a reason normal books are printed this way. It's simply far, far easier to read!

The pages are simply beautiful - laid out according to the canons of renaissance design, spacious and clean, with the headings down the side of the page so that they don't interrupt the text. It's elegant and easy to find what you are looking for. Most of all, it's very natural to read and easy to lose yourself in. The nine-point font is not huge for the size of the bible, but extremely clear.

It is big and relatively thick - white space and single columns make sure of that - so it's really a bible for home. But it's so much more readable than a more portable bible that that isn't a bad thing.

The binding, too, is lovely. The Trutone cover feels soft and luxurious, and it sits open naturally, because it's smyth-sewn. The quality is obvious as soon as you pick it up.

The one problem with the quality of manufacture is the gold edging to the pages - mine was marked in one place after two days, simply through normal use.

Such a wonderful typesetting. The section headings belong in the margin; there they are easier to scan through and make for a smoother reading. The font is small, but my eyes can deal with it.

Great binding. The brown TruTone cover is soft and feels quite good. Looks great too. So it's an acceptable alternative to leather. And I suppose you can get it rebound at a later time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too big and awkward with flimsy pages 7 Jan 2014
Format:Imitation Leather
I'm afraid i was disappointed with this Bible, from a practical view point. When it first arrived it seemed well-made and looked impressive. However, when i came to reading it, i found it heavy, clumsy and awkward and discovered it's easily dropped.
I think if you are a man with big hands, then this won't be an issue. However, if you are a woman with typically small hands, then the weight of this huge Bible could render it impractical for serious study and reading.
I found the pages very thin and flimsy for such a large Bible and the print looked a little too small. Neither did i find the print any clearer or easier to read, despite the single column. Which came as a surprise because all these claims about 'single column' reading being much easier on the eye... i had hoped for a noticeable difference... but can honestly say i found none!

I went back to my normal-sized, clearly printed, well laid out, albeit double-columned, Zondervan NIV Bible! Which too has the smyth-sewn binding to keep the pages lying flat - the only good thing about the Legacy Bible in my opinion.
And found this both easier to handle and to read.

I don't mean to be a kill-joy but that's just how it was for me.
I simply found this Bible too big and impractical and prone to sagging and dropping; which i put down to the very soft cover for such a heavy Book.
Perhaps the whole thing would have worked better in hardback..? I dunno.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, and for the money, outstanding 4 Dec 2013
Format:Imitation Leather
The legacy Tru-tone edition of the ESV is excellent, and I recommend it.
The pages are quite thin, but not fragile. They are smyth-sewn, so this is an edition which is supposed to last (no guarantees though!). Great chunks will not fall out as it gets used and folded, the glue will not give way and forcing you to tape your Bible back up together.
The printed text is quite large, very clear, and the bible falls open and remains open at whichever page you want. The margins are wide enough to allow for pencilled notes in the side and the feel of it is very enjoyable.
It is on the larger and heavier side- smaller than the big study bible version, but larger than most standard pew-Bibles, or typical carry-around versions.

For those who love books, and those who really appreciate a well-made Bible, this is a great edition and warrants the positive reviews given it by connoisseurs. And for 20! Outstanding.
